will hold a meeting to talk about what killed ambassador chris stevens. the timing is interesting because congress is out of town. congressm >>. >> mitt romney said he would not overturn president obama's executive order that granted temporary work permits for dreamers, children brought to the u.s. by illegal immigrants. this isn't the only area where the candidates agree on immigration. richard lui is here with where they stand. >> are the candidates the same or different on immigration? "no real differences between presidential candidates on immigration." "obama versus romney, 101, five ways they differ on immigration." president obama's deferred action plan for immigrants in the u.s. illegally or without authorization. today governor romney says he would continue it. 1.7 million unauthorized immigrants under 31 could benefit from this potentially staying two years with work authorization, as well. that is a lighter version of the dream act which would give permanent residency. the president stalled the president's effort in 2010. romney saying he would veto it saying he would grant leg
ambassador stevens was there and seized the moment. so it may have been planned, but 30 minutes beforehand. >> and of course we get into the whole question of immediate aftermath. when did u.s. intelligence now, when did they tell the white house, which is going to become a crucial issue, who is to blame for any errors that may have happened. from your reporting and you've done a lot in terms of studying these jihadist and extremist groups, what i find incredibly ironic here is that these groups linked to al-qaeda wanted moammar gadhafi to be killed. that was something that was accomplished by the united states, who are they are now trying to attack. >> that's right. they don't care who does their work for them so long as their work gets done. yes, they wanted gadhafi killed. there was a group called the libyan fighting group, the organization, they tried to assassinate gadhafi in '96 and gadhafi retaliated massively and they all fled, joined up with al-qaeda. during the revolution, they re-formed. not necessarily named as such, then they leveraged the nato support, which assassinated gadh
